Restrictions on travel to the United States will not be lifted for now

Restrictions on travel to the United States will not be lifted for now

The White House says restrictions restricting the entry of the vast majority of the world’s population into the United States will never be lifted by 2020. The White House said this week that the United States will not lift existing travel restrictions due to concerns about the Covit-19 delta variant and rising corona virus cases in the United States.

This means that long-term travel restrictions that prevented the world’s population from coming to the United States from 2020 will not be lifted in the near future. “Where we are now … with the Delta type, we will maintain the existing travel restrictions at this time,” a White House spokesman said. “Due to the delta variation, the number of corona patients in the United States is increasing, especially among those who have not been vaccinated. The number of corona cases is likely to continue to rise in the coming weeks. Airlines have been pressing the White House for months to remove the restrictions. .

Rochelle Walenski, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States, said Thursday that the seven-day average in the United States was 53% higher than the previous week. The delta variant, discovered in India, now accounts for more than 80% of new cases nationwide and has been found in more than 90 countries. Zaki also noted that due to the increase in cases, the CDC last week urged Americans not to travel to the UK. People who can’t see their loved ones are outraged by the restrictions, and the White House has expressed a desire to reunite separated families.
